Paramount’s World War Z is currently in post-production, working towards a December 21 release date. The project is adapted from Max Brooks‘ novel, although both the studio and director Marc Forster are keen on expanding this adaptation into a trilogy. Take a look below at this excerpt from a recent profile on star Brad Pitt.

“For Pitt, the big sci-fi thriller also represents his strongest bid to have a big film franchise of his own, which might be viewed as the missing piece of his career jigsaw puzzle. Forster and Paramount Pictures each view World War Z as a trilogy that would have the grounded, gun-metal realism of, say, Matt Damon’s Jason Bourne series tethered to the unsettling end-times vibe of AMC’s The Walking Dead.”
